Leaves and butterflies

Another card using the lovely pretty leaves embossing folder by Lisa Horton, brushed with oxide distress ink. I used an offcut of green mirror card to cut the mini doilie from Lisa Horton's mini doilies set, with the inner piece cut from a scrap left from one of the papers from Lisa's magazine. The large butterflies are from a pack bought long ago.
